Home of the Brave

Somewhere in the Sand

Press 53 | May 9, 2013

As editor Jeffrey Hess states in his introduction, “Home of the Brave implies the American military. Somewhere in the Sand implies the desert conditions of both Iraq and Afghanistan, but also the mental state that the returning service members occupy periodically or perpetually once they return home.” These twenty-two works of fiction tell those stories and allow the reader to experience war, and peace (if it can be found) after war, from both perspectives.
